>> all right. how's everybody doing? good? are we ready to make some noise? seriously. i am serious. now, how does that home run call go? do you all remember? right. can you help me out? "he hits it high. he hits it deep, and he hits it -- very good. all right. let's do a couple of practice runs before we start eliminating some cities. all right. let's do a pablo sandoval home run. pablo, give me a fake swing. he hit its high. he hits it deep and he hits it -- already. let's do one more. jeremy, are you ready? take a swing. and the
pitch to affeldt. and the pitch -- swing and a miss. [laughter] >> hey, no, we will do it this time. do you trust me? come on, seriously. come on. all right. we're going to do it anyway. are you ready? and the pitch to affeldt. he hits it high. he hits it deep and he hits it -- >> audience: out of here. >> now, this has to be louder because we're eliminating cities and teams. are you ready? they were supposed to be better than us after a bunch of trades. the los angeles dodgers are -- all right. the giants. they're down to two games of cincinnati. they win three straight. the reds are? >>
audience: out of here! >> it has to be louder for the next two. are you ready? the giants go to st. louis and need to win there and back home. the st. louis cardinals are? >> audience: out of here! >> now for the big one. the mighty american league detroit tigers. you ready? the detroit tigers -- they are? audience: out of here! >> you never disappoint. here is my partner mike. >> well, we have become an organization of expertation. there's expectation when you win a championship in 2010 and there is expectation when you get in that ballpark everyday and it's over flowing with your love and affection and there is purity
in the formula that this organization goes about trying to meet those standards of excellence. it starts with the fans of historians that we call investors that kept us here in san francisco and goes to the front office comprised of men and women dedicating their lives to this team and goes to baseball operations and the fierce -- the fierce, the ferocious drive of brian saibian and his staff and the most storied manager in san francisco giants history and his teachers and coaches and on to the training and medical staff, but inevitably it will always draw right on the backs of the men who have numbers on their backs. it's up to them to forge together a chemistry that allows them to believe in one another
and this they did. this they did. and with sergio romo threw the last pitch in the 2012 season and he struck out miguel cabriara this group in one pitch they justified -- they justified that expectation, and now they stand before you today humbly stand before you today, and their accomplishment has matched the verrossity of your adoring devotion. no other way to say it and to allow them to plant a plag and once again they can say it loudly "we are the giants. we are san francisco, and we are the world champions"
. [cheers and applause] audience: let's go giants! let's go giants! let's go giants! >> i would like now to introduce a couple of guys who have inspired all of us with their journeys in this game of baseball. please welcome two of the foundations to this championship team, ryan vogelsong and barry zito.
[cheers and applause] >> how are you guys doing? [cheers and applause] me and vogy have a special relationship and we were talking in detroit after we clinchd and i told him how much he inspired him and respects him and me and him have been through states of hell in this game and the lows have been very low but we're enjoying the highs of the highs right now and thanks to these guys right here and thanks to all you guys and it's a real honor to be up here and be part of helping this team this year. such a blessing so thank you very much. [cheers and applause] >> well, i have been told by
older people on this team i need to keep this quick. there are two reasons we won and one we came together and as hunter said we played for the names on the front and not on the back and because of you fans. the way you brought us fort in the season and the post season. we went to the other cities and they weren't as loud as you and quite frankly detroit's fans weren't even norly as loud as you and that's why we won and thank you very much and i told the team i was going to do this and we have a battle cry that nobody knows about and i'm going to break it out right now and you have to figure it out. it's as simple as this "you're going to
jail now" . >> hard to beat. three more main stays to this championship team. matt cain, sergio romo and buster posey. [cheers and applause] >> well, now we have no chance after that. this has been such an unbelievable ride this year. all these guys came together early in spring and really believed in each other. we had an eventful year and we have romo being romo behind us, but this has been truly amazing and without you guys we wouldn't be here and you guys are by far
the best fans in baseball and we got to all right that all this season and it's unbelievable and this next guy needs no introduction but we will give him one anyway. mvp posey. [cheers and applause] >> thank you. audience: mvp! mvp! >> thank you for me look looking around and seeing all the excitement and happiness on everyone's face you realize an accomplishment like this means more than just winning a game. this is about making memories with your family and friends to last a lifetime and i think we all know and believe that if you think something's achievable as long as you're willing to work hard enough for it and believe it can happen you can get it done and i just want to thank
you guys for all your energy and excitement you bring to san francisco and for the giants day in and day out. you all are the best. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> well, -- audience: romo, romo. >> well, first off congratulations san francisco. we definitely couldn't have done it without you guys. i will venture to say -- there is one thing i noticed about my team we are a great example of this city. look at the diversity of personalities, where we all come from, the different faces from different stories and we all have one goal in mine. we had one job in mine. we had one dream in mine
and that is to be world series champions with this group and i am proud to say that. you guys the same thing. we couldn't have done it without you, the city of san francisco. like i said you guys better be proud. you need to be proud and i will tell you for dang sure we are all world series champions and wearing orange and black in san francisco.

[cheers and applause] >> [inaudible] played with all heart. all right. all right everyone. everyone's been talking about the speech and a lot about the reverend which is a lot of empty smoke if you ask me. there is one simple thing that happened with this team that hasn't been talked about
enough and it was sacrifice. when i went up and talked to these guys i asked them to sacrifice themselves and play for each other and you won't see that too often with this big of a stage and the playoffs with this great group of super stars. they sacrificed their ego and they played for you guys and this is what this celebration is about. it's about you. thank you guys. we are going to bring this together. we want you to join in what we do in the dug out. i want you teach you about this and this is how we did it and i want you to lose your mind. >> ladies and gentlemen, this is how we get pumped up before we kill every team baby. >> every join with me. hands in the hair. we going to slow clap this and bring it up.

happy that all of you could come out and join us, you know, on this evening. my namey. the director of the night rover challenge. i'm going to kind of be the moderator for tonight, as we go through this first-ever challenge america summit. so i've got just a few things that, you know, i wanted to do with everyone, before we get into the program.
first of all, i just want to take a minute and have everyone just look around this room. in this room, we have amazing people that are corporate, nonprofit, and government, all focused on challenge driven innovation in some way or another. this is a really powerful,interf people that are gathered here to look at how competitions can drive innovation. that's what tonight is all about, is, you know, the next step in creating a real wave of innovation. my job tonight is just to give you a little bit of background on what we are, what we're tiqp)q)s that we have.roup of so just to get going with that, i want to tell you a little bit about this thing called the night rover/< challenge. this is a collaboration between the clean tech open, unoodle, and nasa. it's a program from nasa's office of centennial challenges.
and it's challengin the best innovators in america to create radical new energy storage technology. you know, way above what we have now. this is something very powerful, to be able to keep rovers going on the moon, in mars, things that could be useful, in your cell electric vehicles, something that just is a radical leap in new technology. but i don't want to go into a lot of detail on that. you'll hear more about nasa's efforts later. and what i'm going to do1r is ge a little more background on challenge-driven innovation. and i'm going to do that just by plaijerrizing some people because it makes it a loteasier for me. i want to look at this quote, prize is a very old -- an old idea that is surprisingly powerful in our modern society. this is by a study that by mckenzie and company, back in 2010. prize is a very old idea, very
powerful in our modern society. surprisingly powerful in our modern society. mckenzie also said this, 32,000, in 2010, there were 32,000no competitions, competitions, prizes, awards. that's a big number. it could be bigger but it's a big number, for one year, 32,000 competitions happened. to continue on in myk mckenzie also said this, while tens of thousands of prizes and awards are give out every year, we've been struck by the lack of conferences or professional associations to share best practices and facilitate collaboration. now there's some kind of relationship between what doing here today, and that. i don't know exactly what it is, but hopefully by the end of tonight and tomorrow, we can start j we're doing here, can really start toqphp
having an organization, or, you know, somethingd exactly what mckenzie is saying is missing. so this just brings me to myó last question. and it's why are we here. here inca this room. that's just one side of it. i'm not talking about why we're here in som galactic cosmic sense of theá@ word. what i'm talking about is a more important part of that question. i am missing a slide in there. so the important part of that question was why are we here in san francisco. and we're here in san francisco because san francisco is one of the most innovative cities in the galaxy, and it's a very great place to be the home of the challenge america summit, the first-ever challenge america
summit. so it's now my job to introduce our first speaker of the night, who is going to officially kick off the first-ever challenge america summit, somebody who has been verylfe instrumental in creating a movement around innovation in san francisco. just a few months ago, announced october as innovation month inla whole lot of work on, you know, creating a@g real ecosystem for entrepreneurs, for governments, for everybody to create new ideas and new innovations. please join me in welcoming mayor ed lee to the floor. >> [applause.] >> thank you. thank you, josh. welcome, everybody. now that i know where i'm at, i want to welcome all of you, i want to of course thank the night challenge -- night rover
